Injuries You May Suffer in a Car Wreck
If you were injured, or your car was badly damaged, it’s important to consult a lawyer as soon as you can. They’ll help you investigate the situation while physical evidence is intact and witnesses’ memories are still fresh.
Injuries from car accidents can take many forms, including:
- Broken bones
- Torn ligaments
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back injuries
Your lawyer can also help you navigate confusing insurance issues such as medical bill coverage and uninsured or underinsured motorist claims.
Do I Need a Lawyer If I Don’t Plan to File a Lawsuit?
In a word: Yes! Courtrooms aren’t the only venue where an experienced lawyer is an invaluable advocate. Insurance adjusters have many techniques for giving the run-around to people they’re supposed to help. If you’ve never had to negotiate with one before, they may try to pull one over on you.
Our experienced team at Cunningham Bounds knows how to deal with insurers in a no-nonsense way. We’ve done this hundreds of times before. There’s no need for you to take on the stress of a negotiation when you’re recovering from a scary experience like a car accident! Let our team do the hard work of reasoning with stingy insurance companies so you can focus on recovering and returning to your daily routine.
Even if you don’t think you need to file a lawsuit now, developments in your case may make it necessary. Sometimes even a lawyer can’t talk an insurer into paying what your accident was worth. In that case, your best hope of recovering additional compensation is taking the at-fault driver to court. Having a lawyer who’s been with you since you first filed a claim can simplify the process of preparing for a lawsuit.
Recovering Compensation in Court
If you choose to go to court after a car accident, you may file suit directly against the at-fault driver’s insurance company or directly against the individual. A lawyer can help you decide what damages to seek. In Alabama, this may include expenses the insurer refused to reimburse, as well as tangible damages. You may request payment for:
- Medical bills
- Car repairs
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
Once in court, you’ll be arguing your case in front of a jury, so it’s important to make sure you have strong evidence. Your attorney can also help you prepare to confidently answer questions during cross-examination. They will present your case in a straightforward but compelling manner to help convince the jury that you deserve further compensation.
Don’t Let the Statute of Limitations Cut You Off
In Alabama, you have two years after an accident to file a lawsuit. Though this may seem like a long time, remember that first you have to go through the entire insurance claim process. Insurance adjusters often draw out this phase, hoping to frustrate or exhaust you. Also, everyone has a busy life—and two years isn’t as long as it sounds when you factor in the multiple steps in pursuing compensation. Make sure legal stipulations don’t prevent you from suing for uncovered expenses: Hire an experienced car accidents attorney today.
